In order to bring together descriptive, explicative and predictive approaches, the MIVEGEC attaches a lot of importance to the integration of the data it collects. Different mathematical models and biological systems are studied according to the questions being asked. In particular, the biological systems of interest include the vectors of Plasmodium, those that transmit dengue, Chikungunya or different types of flu, and the mycobacteria responsible for tuberculosis, Buruli ulcer and meningitis.

To understand the biotic and abiotic mechanisms that explain the introduction, spread or persistance of pathogens or vectors in the environment and to estimate the consequences of human intervention (vaccination, treatment, biological control, ecosystem modification, climate change) on the dynamics of their transmission, the MIVEGEC particular focusses on the following topics :-

 

  • Modelling ecological niches, taking into account vector-environment and gene-environment interactions
  • Modelling ecosystem dynamics in line with global changes and the health of human and animal populations
  • Modelling interactions between biological diversity and the human or animal health
  • Modelling evolutionary and epidemiological dynamics of infectious diseases
